My name is Gregory Lynn and I’ve been obsessed with stories for as long as I can remember.
When other kids spent their afternoons and summers playing baseball and kick the can or whatever, I was inside reading. I grew up with heroes and dragons and spaceships and magical lands you could only get to through a wardrobe.
I grew up wanting to be a wizard.
It didn’t take me long to realize that wasn’t going to happen. Still, all that reading had left me with a good understanding of how words work. Words and sentences and paragraphs. It turned out you can’t write a decent paragraph without having a coherent thought and you can’t write multiple paragraphs without breaking larger thoughts down into smaller, connected thoughts.
It wasn’t until I was out working in a cube farm that I realized that was hard for most people. I had a skill most people didn’t and that made me a sort of wizard after all—if you squint and the light’s not too good.
Then powers that be at that cube farm laid me off and I called down thunder and lightning upon their heads. The thunder and lightning ignored me. There are limits to what magic words can do.
I learned something though. I realized I didn’t ever want to be in that position again. It’s not that working for someone else is bad. It’s just that the work we do—and the money it brings in—has a ridiculous amount of control over what we do and how happy we are on a daily basis. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t putting my happiness in someone else’s hands and that meant I had to work for myself.
I won’t kid you. I failed a lot. Many of the past several years haven’t been my favorite, but somewhere along the line, it dawned on me that the secret to being your own boss lie in having a skill most people don’t possess.
I went to work writing for a content mill and I’d still be there if I hadn’t also gone to work learning the craft of writing effective business copy. Writing is writing, but every application is a little bit different and writing memos in a cube farm isn’t the best training for writing marketing content.
I’ve learned a great deal of new magic and I’m offering to put it in your hands. I can write compelling content that will introduce you to potential customers and win them to your side.
